Singer/songwriter Ne-Yo is moving from Def Jam to Motown Records, and he is bringing his Compound imprint along with him. You can now call Ne-Yo the senior vice president of A&R at the label. The Atlanta-based artist released the following statement on the news:
“I’m honored that I¹ve been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility; terrified because I know that playing this role in the fashion of one of my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson — these are big shoes to fill. But trust, I can handle it.”
